We can help you whether you require assistance in developing your policies, procedures and risk assessments or the implementation of a Health, Safety and Environmental management system.

It is important to have a system for managing your Health, Safety and Environmental affairs as to stay without one and stand the risk to overlook aspects. The best known Occupational Health and Safety Management System are OHSAS 18001. This framework will help your organisation to consistently identify hazards and control its health and safety risks, reduce the likelihood of accidents, aid legal compliance and improve your business performance.

Previous to the introduction of OHSAS 18001 there was no compatible Occupational Health and Safety Management System, which meant that health and safety management would often be dealt with as a stand-alone function. Another advantage of this standard is that they are certifiable; demonstrating to potential clients that certified organisations could meet their expectations. There was no such certified Occupational Health and Safety Management System. OHSAS 18001 is the internationally recognized assessment specification for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems. It was developed by a selection of leading trade bodies, international standards and certification bodies to address a gap where no third-party certifiable international standard existed. If your organisation is working to, or certified to any of the ISO standards, such as ISO 9001 or ISO 14001, this is likely to be the best Occupational Health and Safety Management System for your business.

The greatest advantage of this system is that it can be cost effective to implement and maintain. One disadvantage is that this system does not integrate effectively with other management systems, which could lead to isolated management of health and safety.
